Snapshot: Dhabas in the High Himalayas

21 November 2013

The sun dips in the high Himalayas and with it goes any sense of warmth, except for these dhabas that spring up along the fabled Manali-Leh Highway catering to those with a calling to ride in the sky and feel small in grand nature.

The Ibex dhaba here at Sarchu, up high at 4,330m (14,200 ft), provides warm paranthas and noodle soup for the weary rider.
